Emergencies are circumstances that we may never know when or where to happen, and may be caused either by human activities or natural calamities and phenomenon. This is the reason why we need to always have an emergency action plan.
An emergency action plan is needed especially for companies and businesses to be prepared when a real emergency occurs. Having an emergency action plan will be of great help to assure the employees and the clients of a specific establishment that the people hired by the company are all equipped with the knowledge on what to do should an emergency occur.

- full knowledge of the structure where people are in and is assumed to be in should an emergency occur;
- identifying the safety features of the area, especially the emergency exits and emergency lights;
- determining whether emergency equipment in the building are up to date and functional;
- ability to figure whether the site conditions are appropriate for the emergency action plan to be made;
- nearby locations must also be considered as they may affect the implementation of emergency procedures on different manners; and

Testing the Emergency Action Plan
After an emergency action plan is fully done, the layout and practices that should be implemented in times of emergency must be tested. This can be done on hours or days where there are no work operations. Also, it may be done with the help of clients to make the emergency more realistic. You just need to let them know beforehand that there will be a live simulation of the emergency action plan.
